A creature moves at a speed of 7.86 furlongs/fortnight (not a very common unit of speed). If 1.0 furlong = 220 yards 1 fortnight = 14 days 1 yard = 0.9144 meter and 1 day= 86400 sec find the speed of the creature (which is probably a snail).

1. 2.28745 × 109 m/s

2. 0.00130719 m/s

3. 1.16706 × 107 m/s

4. 47261.3 m/s

5. 0.25621 m/s

6. 39516.4 m/s

7. 5.29359 × 10−6 m/s

Answer:

2 0.00130719 m/s

Explanation:

Now we have

7.86 furlongs/fortnight

7.86 x 220 yards / fortnight

1729.2yards / fortnight

1647.8 yards / 14 days

123.5yards / day

So

123.5 x 0.9144 meter / day

112.meters / day

=112.9meters / 86400s

= 0.001307m/s
